This looks good, but I assume that the bug was caused by some race
condition where if you try to call dm_task_get_info() while some other
process is creating or removing a snapshot, dm_task_get_info() is
returning some kind of EAGAIN, or some other "Try again; we're busy"
error, right?

If that is the case, can you try to find out what error is being
returned?  It may be the right thing to do is to check to see if we
are getting a "resource is locked; try again in a sec" error message,
and retry the dm_task_get_info(), instead of just returning a failure.
